It's not yet known how bad his injury is, but I think they are downplaying it and wouldn't be surprised to see Melancon open the year as closer. I'm picking him up in leagues I have a garbage bench player.
On a seperate note I find this to be funny: "Bailey was delayed at the start of spring training because of a strained lat suffered during the vertical leap portion of his entrance physical."
First of all, how important is it to measure a pitcher's hang time? And how do you pass a physical when you injure yourself during it???
